Alternative Breaks Scholarships:

The WUD Alternative Breaks Trip Scholarship program seeks to enable all students, regardless of their financial situation, to participate in the WUD Alternative Breaks trips.  Through this program we are able to provide scholarships which can cover part, or all, of the advertised trip cost.  The scholarship program is generously supported through the Charles F. Meissner Alternative Breaks Fund.
